Bitterns have been showing well, flying between Boulderwall and Tower Pits, while several Garganeys are lurking amongst the Teal flocks. Mediterranean Gulls are prominent within gull flocks and the Common Terns are feeding juveniles on the green-topped islands. The Black Swan pair seem to have settled on Lade south for the duration.
At the point more Mediterranean Gulls are loafing at the Patch along with the first juvenile Yellow-legged Gulls. The sea has been relatively quiet, although I did note an Arctic Skua earlier in the week harrying terns on Lade sands.
